05 June 2019

Ahead of its release in November, The Fan Carpet are delighted to present the Trailer and Photo for James Mangold's LE MANS '66, courtesy of 20th Century Fox!

Academy Award-winners Matt Damon and Christian Bale star in LE MANS ‘66, based on the true story of the visionary American car designer Carroll Shelby (Damon) and the fearless British-born driver Ken Miles (Bale), who together battled corporate interference, the laws of physics, and their own personal demons to build a revolutionary race car for Ford Motor Company and take on the dominating race cars of Enzo Ferrari at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in France in 1966.

Starring alongside Matt Damon (THE MARTIAN) and Christian Bale (VICE) is Caitriona Balfe (OUTLANDER), Tracy Letts (LADY BIRD), Josh Lucas (J EDGAR), Jon Bernthal (THE PUNISHER) Ray McKinnon (THE BLIND SIDE).



LE MANS ’66 is directed by James Mangold (WALK THE LINE, LOGAN). Produced by Peter Chernin, Jenno Topping and James Mangold. Written by the critically acclaimed brothers Jez Butterworth & John-Henry Butterworth (FAIR GAME) alongside Jason Keller (ESCAPE PLAN). Director of Photography is Phedon Papamichael (3:10 TO YUMA).

JAMES MANGOLD (DIRECTOR) said “I love stories that take you to a time when we were a little less cautious: when we were first figuring out our relationship to technology, how we were going to make excellent tools and faster better contraptions based upon our instincts more than computer models. Now, we’ve become so corporate, liability-protected, computer simulated and risk averse it’s hard to imagine the same kind of discovery is even possible. The eccentric characters who pioneered racing, much like our astronauts and test pilots, put their lives on the line every day. The cars were prototypes, one of a kind, and sometimes death traps, dawning-age beasts so powerful they could tear themselves apart. The men behind the wheel and in the pits and garages came from all walks of life, speed junkies, technical engineers, entrepreneurs, military men, street racers, gamblers, designers, hot rodders, and car geeks, young and old. All working together at the very edge of technology without a map.”



Starring Matt Damon (The Martian, Good Will Hunting, The Departed), Christian Bale (Vice, The Dark Knight, American Psycho), Jon Berthnal (The Wolf of Wall Street, Baby Driver, Sicario) and Caitriona Balfe (Super 8, Escape Plan, Now You See Me), LE MANS ’66 is Directed by James Mangold and hits Cinemas on November 8.
